Rain or Shine!
This is an opportunity to help people discover the joy of growing their own food! We give away free pots of vegetable plants, offer gardening advice, plant community gardens and run children’s food and craft activities. The event needs volunteers to help with all of these, (including early set up and take down). For more information about volunteering at this event, contact Penny at [email protected]
